Faultlessly cooked, traditional and exotic. My first time eating in such an establishment, and eating without cutlery, first time indeed for being given food without ordering it from a menu, as what is cooked in house is what is severed... a set menu. I have no idea what it was but it was gorgeous, and the whole dining area smelt... More

Well, i've been waiting 1 hr to get my dish ready and once there...I didn't have enough bread to eat it (since for the typical cosine you are not allowed to eat with cutlery!!!) so i kept on asking more bread,and ,when it arrived after other 30 min, my dish was already cold and all flavors mixed. On the menu... More

Hi, Thanks for your feedback and we apologies iif you had a less than satisfactory experience especially because Warsa is known for being more than generous with its portions and extra "bread". Warsa is usually fully booked on a typical Saturday evening which is why we have two turns but our regular costumers don't mind as that is part of... More

Family dinner during our summer vacation. We were looking for something spicy after several days of typical Italian food and wandered in after a long day of sightseeing. Our waiter (think he was the son/owner) essentially took charge of ordering. Bread was outstanding, the chicken and meat stew was wonderfully flavored. Placed filled up and nice lively ambiance. Wine was... More

was recommended by friends; my first Eritrean cuisine; extremely satisfying! flavors are a mixed bag of Spanish, Persian, Mediterranean. all good including then house wine my only caveat... eating with your hands... I can see the experience factor but after a serving or too, I would prefer to have utensils instead of wiping and washing every now and then

I always wanted to go, but never had the chance before till a couple of weeks ago: such a brilliant surprise with high quality food and a very pleasant atmosphere. The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere with some little tables, so I wouldn't recommend it for big party, however as I'm a bit posh, I felt so homely by how... More

Very cool place with INCREDIBLY tasty food. I do think the portions are a little small when you consider the amount served for a hungry couple on one central plate, and i was a little disappointed of the no desert option, but overall, really very very good food, tasty, spicy, and perfectly prepared. Will recommend and revisit. I loved it!

Found out about this restaurant because it was included in a book I downloaded from Amazon on top 100 places to eat in Milan. Realised that it was close to our hotel and decided to give it a go! As we walked in we were met with a gorgeous scent of spices and a friendly host who accommodated the four... More
